Ndoro Double Sees Pirates Oust Chiefs

Nedbank Cup
 
Result: Orlando Pirates 2-0 Kaizer Chiefs
 
Date: 5 March 2016
 
Venue: FNB Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates beat their Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs 2-0 to progress into the last-16 of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.
 
The Buccaneers had a few early chances to take the lead. Tendai Ndoro made a terrific run down the left channel in the fourth minute before cutting inside and shooting from a tight angle, but Reyaad Pieterse made the save.
 
Shortly thereafter Ndoro combined with Thabo Rakhale to cross towards Gift Motupa in the box, but Kgotso Moleko did just enough to put the Pirates forward off and the chance went begging.
 
Chiefs also had a couple of decent openings as Siphiwe Tshabalala sent in a good free kick towards the far post in the 13th minute which Camaldine Abraw just couldn't connect with. Baloyi then pierced the middle of the Bucs defence but sent a poor shot on target.
 
The Amakhosi improved as the first half wore on and threatened to score the opener as Shabba forced a save from Mhlongo before Bernard Parker sent an attempt wide from inside the box.
 
The chances were few and far between after the interval as neither side managed to create clear-cut chances.
 
There was a good opening for Chiefs in the 71st minute when Maluleka found himself in a great position with the ball in the middle. He had options to both sides to put players through but he dallied and lost possession.
 
However, it was Pirates who took the lead in the 77th minute. Mpho Makola played a lovely ball over the top for Tendai Ndoro who took a great first touch before hammering the ball home.
 
In the 84th minute it was all over as Ndoro completed his brace. The striker smashed a 30-yard strike into the far bottom corner of Reyaad Pieterse's goal to secure the victory.
 
Here's how they lined up: 
 
Pirates: Mhlongo, Matlaba, Nyauza, Gcaba, Gyimah, Sarr, Makola, Rakhale, Ndoro, Motupa, Memela
 
Chiefs: Pieterse, Moleko, Mathoho, Gould, Masilela, Katsande, Baloyi, Maluleka, Parker, Tshabalala, Abraw
